Hacker Valley Blue S2 Episode 4 - Lenny Zeltser

Hacker Valley Studio

In this episode, we brought back our good friend Lenny Zeltser.  Lenny is Chief Information Security Officer at Axonius.  He's developed a mindset of looking at security components as building blocks to create a holistic security environment. To this day, even while operating as an executive, he has wisdom that anyone can learn from. Quite often, the less sexy aspects of information security are ignored, when in reality, you need to understand what resources you're supposed to protect, which assets are compromised, and the infrastructure for your organization.  People jump right into fighting the big fires, and as you know, there is a reason why there are so many day-to-day urgent activities.  To start moving in a positive direction, Lenny shares this advice, “Understand what the major data sources you can tap into rather than thinking ‘let me create this one new way of serving everything I have are.’”  The information is there. Think about three sources of information that might get you the biggest bang for the buck!

Paul's Security Weekly - Episode 150 - Intro & Interview with Lenny Zeltser- April 30, 2009

Paul's Security Weekly

In this first part of Episode 150 we crack the keg, introduce the show, and do a short interview with Lenny Zeltser: "Much of security advice under the "best practices" umbrella seems to assume that the company is interested in having strong security or in being a high performer of IT/security practices. Yet, most companies (e.g SMBs) don't care about high performance: they just want to survive and conduct business and to have security that's just good enough. So, what advice should we offer to companies who will never be proactive about security, who will never implement defense-in-depth, and who maybe don't need to worry about these issues? That's why I've been creating one-page cheat-sheets to assist companies who haven't prepared, yet a stuck in a tough spot. " More information here
